PLASTIC SURGERY

Cosmetic plastic surgery includes surgical and nonsurgical procedures that reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve appearance and self-esteem. Healthy individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations are appropriate candidates for cosmetic procedures. Plastic surgery is a personal choice and should be done for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit an ideal image. Because it is elective, cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance.

Our Physicians mission is to advance quality care to plastic and general surgery patients by encouraging high standards of training, ethics, physician practice and research in plastic and general surgery. The Society is a strong advocate for patient safety and requires its members to operate in accredited surgical facilities that have passed rigorous external review of equipment and staffing.

UROLOGY

The medical specialty of urology covers a wide range of urologic problems, from kidney stones to infertility or numerous cancers. Most patients that are seen are first evaluated by their primary medical or family practice doctors. These physicians often initially treat basic urologic problems such as an enlarged prostate or a urinary tract infection. If the problems become more severe, our urologists are then consulted. The evaluation begins with an office visit where problems are identified and treatment options discussed. If a problem requires surgery, you are in good hands. All of our urologists are also experienced surgeons. For complex or high risk cases, we form a team to perform the procedure, ensuring the highest quality of care.
